|Would anyone kindly share some tips on Marshy jumping? I only have one set of tack which is Falcon Tack,should I invest in some more? If so what kind? I have little to no interest and in competing in Group 2 or 1 so I don't plan to buy 4* anytime soon. |
I can get over the lower ones ok but the rest I send the poles flying.
I recently bought a maxed Warlander,would she be good for it because of her strength? I forgot her genes but next I'm on I'll check and post here.

|There are some tips on how much speed/strength to use for each jump under Horse Info>Arenas>Jumping. The idea, really, is to slow down before the big jumps and experiment with a few horses to find the best one for you.
I'm a comparatively new player, automatically making me a newb of sorts. (;
Come poke me in any medium I inhabit if you have HI/EL questions. <3

|Exactly what Person said, look at the jumping guide on here (http://www.esrohlegends.com/index/jumping/0-250) which will tell you exactly what speed and jump power to use with each jump. |
Each horse is different. I had two maxed Irish Sport Horses, a +147 and a +144 and I was surprised at how differently they jumped. The amount of Strength a horse has, its tack, bond, and exp points all make a difference, so you'll have to experiment with your specific horse a bit before you can get a clear or almost clear round. However, it will be impossible to get a clear round with a horse with less than 60 points of jumping power. Warlanders probably don't have enough strength to be able to get the oxers and slants. You'll find that you hit those top two poles every time, no matter how fast or high you jump. You will want a horse with 450-500 strength for jumping. Drafts, Irish Draught, and Irish Sport Horses are the popular choice among competitors.
As for tack, falcon tack isn't really a help at Jumping, in my experience. As long as your horse has 40-ish points in speed, you won't need to use tack to boost that. I'm too poor to have a dozen sets of tack so I go with the Adventure(3*)/Expedition(4*) sets which grant an all around bonus. Gorilla(3*)/Hercules(4*) tack would be the best to give a strength boost. Also remember to use Gription shoes which can add one or two points to your jumping power.
And most importantly, don't be discouraged. It takes a lot of practice and patience too to be able to get a clear round in Jumping.
